"New Pokémon Snap" was announced at the 17th of June during Pokémon Presents.
The Pokémon presentation was expected to be about Pokémon Sword and Shield expansion pass, but as usual, the announcement about Pokémon that keeps the whole world excited was different. And that’s not all!
Amongst all of the announcements, the most exciting one, especially for the older generation, was the announcement of brand new "Pokémon Snap"!
What is "Pokémon Snap"?
"Pokémon Snap" is a game released for Nintendo 64 in 1999 April. In 2017, it was also distributed through the virtual console Wii U.
It is a spin-off title with cameraman Toru as the main character, who appeared in "Pocket Monster" anime.
In this game, all you have to do is taking pictures of Pokémon’s who live on Pokémon Island. But total score changes depending on the Pokémon’s movement, angle of picture, and timing. And that makes this game so addicting.
It’s hard to estimate the popularity of this game because even 21 years later there are "Pokémon Snap" enthusiasts who compete in RTA competition.
